This has got to be the easiest appetizer in the world ! It has 2 ingredients and anyone who has tried these just loves them! My plate always comes home enjoy !


  1. Take the bacon and cut it in half.
  2. Wrap each individual date in the 1/2 slice of raw bacon.
  3. Secure each bacon wrapped date with a toothpick.
  4. Place all of these dates on a cookie sheet.
  5. Cook at 350 for approximately 30 minutes, turning them once.
  6. They are done when all sides are brown.
  7. Remove toothpicks before serving.
  8. These are easily transported and reheated.
  9. Serve warm and wait for the applause!

Not only for the single ladies, this one's a real keeper. They are quick and easy to prepare and no one believed that I actually made them. People couldn't figure out what the other ingredient was besides the bacon. It was the first date with a pig that I actually enjoyed.

I have this recipe from another source. However, there is one difference...stuff each date with a whole pecan. This appetizer is always a hit!

Nice and easy. I didn't even use toothpick and placed seam side down for cooking which sealed the edge nicely.
